When you turn this it turns the gears and there does not seam to be a way to lock this to remove the bolt. I need to take this out to remove the shaft that i need to replace. am i doomed to spending more then the saw is worth to have a repair shop do this.

I would recommend going to Dewaltservicenet.com and typing in your model number on the following page you will need to click on your type number for the schematic. their schematics are really detailed and after reviewing if you still have problems let me know.

    couple different ways now that Iknow your problem, can you lock the spindle in vise? if too short remove the gearcase and put a shop rag around the gear or an old piece of innertube or something rubber to keep from damaging teeth and gently lock in vise and remove bolt or what I have done us use an impact wrench to hit it real quick to loosen.

The motor runs but the blade does not turn


UNPLUG the saw! IF your saw is a direct drive; either the blade is loose or the center of the blade is broken, Or the motor shaft has broke off. IF your saw is BELT DRIVEN, check the belt tension, or belt condition.

I need directions on how to change the baldes on a reciprocating saw.


There are 2 types of clamps that hold the blade in that type of saw.

Since this one most likely has the type where the blade is held in place with a set screw and a "U" shaped piece of metal that holds the blade tight against the shaft. There should be a screw hole in the shaft of the saw. The blade rest next to the shaft and then the metal piece clamps the blade against the shaft. This is all held in place by a set screw that screws into the shaft. This screw uses a hex key to remove and tighten it.

If your tool doesn't have this style then it should have a twisting clamp. This will rotate and release the blade. Sometimes a pliers is needed to loosen the collar, but not to tight tho.

I have an old Sears Craftsman 7" Electric Handsaw model #315.27782. The blade I use for fine sawing has begun to wobble. I've taken it off, put it back on and tightened it several times. Same wobble. ...


It could be that the bearings that support the shaft that holds the blade are worn, allowing the shaft to move slightly and make the blade wobble. As the machine is an older model, I would try replacing the bearings.

The blade clamp collar is a spring loaded knob of sorts that holds the blade in place. If you are not able to pull the blade shaft out of the saw to get at it, plug the saw in and hit the on/off trigger a few times to get the shaft and knob out of the body of the saw. Once you can get at the knob it should be easy to turn it and insert a new blade. Let me know if you have problems.

Changing a miter saw blade


lefty-loosey (counter-clockwise). There will be space on the inside of the blade for another wrench to hold the shaft while you loosen the nut. If you've never done it, then you might want a pair of gloves; the blade might be dull on wood, but it'll be sharp on hands!
